College Senior

Campus Strictness: I do not live on campus so I am not sure how many of these would rate

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: Beautiful campus, very expensive to attend

4 College Senior

Weather: Hot in the summer but winters are very mild

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Free health center. Public safety just a button press away!

4 College Freshman

Facilities: Great social life, fitness center, beautiful campus, good programs for everyone, just a great school all around!

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The social scene is splendid and everyone is extremely welcoming and helpful. The actual living facilities are not up to date though. The bathrooms/ showers need to be cleaned more, there needs to be more washers and dryers that aren't such a long walk away, and there should be a more accessible kitchen area. The CAs should also enforce the drug and alcohol policies a little more.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Good selection of classes and majors for everyone. There is also the Johnston program where students can create their own majors.

4 College Freshman

Nightlife: Parties every weekend. You don't have to go every time, but it's always an option.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The university has a lot of successful athletic teams and intramural a are also fun!

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: You have to petition for off campus housing and it can end up being just as expensive as on campus because you get stuck in a lease for an entire year, even when you're not living there.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: The school provides the students with most things to do because the immediate area surrounding seems to not be doing the best job.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: Most people are accepting and loving of everyone regardless of skin color, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, etc.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: All students are welcome to most of the parties. They have date nights occasionally which are exclusive. It's not a huge deal whether or not you're in Greek life.

4 College Freshman

Computers: Sometimes when a lot of people are connecting to the wifi, like during finals, it gets slow and disconnects, but generally it's good and the amount of computer resources we have is absolutely amazing, along with the tech support which is free.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: All just salty, not authentic tasting whatsoever. Not many fresh, organic, or vegetarian options.

2 College Freshman

Transportation: The free shuttle our university provides to the students is nice because it's free of charge, however the hours are quite limited and it never arrives in a timely fashion.

4 College Freshman

Weather: The sunshine in Southern California is always a plus.

College Freshman

Majors: I have not participated in an internship.

College Freshman

Majors: I am only a freshman in college, still working on my general education.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Alcohol and weed are pretty commonly used because some people feel there is not much else to do in the area.

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Students at the university of redlands have a good amount of freedom and a good amount of rules. It's a good balance.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Depending on your major. Accounting, economics, drama, and business programs are strong.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: the locals are awesome and the town is very nice.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are small unless you have a suite, some places dont have AC which sucks for about half of the year. The freshman dorms get annoying because some people should still be in highschool but you meet a lot of people.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

The University of Redlands is steeped in history, from the Victorian-style houses scattered throughout the town to the story of how students in 1926 saved the beloved hillside "R" from being removed by the U.S. Forest Service. Nestled 10 miles east of San Bernardino, Redlands, Calif., is surrounded by breathtaking mountains, with the Memorial Chapel acting like a beacon that draws visitors to the University. In fact, the campus is immersed in "green," with a sustainable garden that grows and sells fresh vegetables to the food management provider on campus. The Redlands community is often noted for its "big town with a small-town feel," and when it comes to University academics, this notion is also apparent, with small class sizes and an 11-to-1 student-teacher ratio. Professors definitely care about their students and see them as people instead of numbers, although some students wish they were a little more challenging with their curricula.

But sometimes being small can feel a little stifling for students. One of the University’s nicknames in regards to nightlife is "Dead-lands," as there are few nightclubs and bars in the area. Typically, the main form of nightlife on campus involves frats and sororities. Luckily, Los Angeles and San Diego are not too far away, so if it's the nightclub scene you're craving, there is sustenance. Speaking of nourishment, campus dining is rated well among students, especially with sustainable and vegetarian options; however, one thing students often vent about is how expensive campus dining can be. You have to be frugal on a week-to-week basis, which can be stressful. On most college campuses, parking is something that causes students anxiety, but at U of R, it's one of their biggest raves. Registration and permits are free, and spots are always relatively easy to find. However, in a beautiful area like Redlands, you'll probably enjoy looking for any excuse to walk.
